The hilarious story began when Waters heard her beloved partner cough downstairs, which triggered a memory she would rather forget. It made the mom-of-three recall the time he was struck down with dreaded man flu. And her brutally honest account of that fateful day left readers in tears. But they weren’t tears of sadness or pity for her sick hubby Ty.
Rather, they were tears of laughter, as Waters documented a step-by-step account of how Ty went from a fully functional human being to an unresponsive “possum” right before her eyes. Not only that, but she also knew he had caught it off her, as she’d been suffering flu symptoms herself all day. Furthermore, Waters was pregnant with her second child at the time, while her first baby had arrived just six months earlier.
But this illness wasn’t pregnancy-related. Waters realized she had stomach flu after witnessing Ty develop identical symptoms. “It was definitely not morning sickness, because I watched my husband transform right before my eyes, stumbling around saying he’s going to puke,” she wrote.
